    Hello, my name is Gloria. I am starting a small new Hostel in Guatape, Antioquia Colombia. Our house has been converted into a new hostel and we are looking for a volunteer to help with our new family project. You will be welcome like family into our home and have the opportunity to explore and enjoy one of the most beautiful places in Colombia with a family who knows all of the hidden gems of the región.
    PLEASE NOTE: We will only accept volunteers with at least an intermediate level of Spanish, as we only speak Spanish, and who are ready to bring their passion and positivity to our home. You need to be creative and ready to contribute to the many ways our budding hostel might need you!
